Polaroids, architecture and poetry – this is what awaits you in the images of our Instagram selection #285. Staged or spontaneous, they reflect the diversity of emotions linked to the photographic moment.


Exclusively dedicated to Polaroids, the Italian photographer Giovanni Previdi’s Instagram gallery contains landscapes, portraits and still lifes. With great mastery, he manipulates blurred and colourful images to capture the nostalgia of everyday life.

We don’t know much about the Instagrammer Shaoqi Hu, so we just let ourselves dive into her world. An intimate universe, where reflections, blur and luminous neon lights transform bodies into works of art. A collection of silhouettes as poetic as they are sensual.

It is abstraction – simple and random – that the photographer Paul Freeth focuses on. Without needing any human presence, the photographer observes the arrangement of things that populate this world, and delivers on his Instagram account raw but harmonious compositions.
